Dishwasher Problems - Water will not drain out

I just went though this problem last night. Follow these steps to minimize the potential work.

First ask if the dishwasher pump is working and if it is then proceed.

1 your dishwasher's dirty water empties into your kitchen drain or garbage disposal. First make sure water is draining properly out of the kitchen sink. If not, then you have found your problem.
2. examine the hose under the sink that leads from the dishwasher to the kitchen sink drain looking for kinks.
3. Assuming neither steps 1 or 2 solve the problem then it is time to get to work on the dishwasher. Get as much water out of the diswasher as possible - a paper cup works great, then Find a You Tube video that shows you how to take apart your dishwasher so you can get to the drain. (I found this video to provide good high-level instructions Clean all filters and examine the food chopper. Then try draining the dishwasher.
4. This is the step that solved my problem. Recover the food chopper and pour about a cup of bleach into the standing water and leave it alone for 30 minutes. If it drains then reassemble the dishwasher and run it at least once to clean out the bleach before adding your dirty dishes. If it doesn't work then you can try pulling out the dishwasher and checking the rest of the hose for blockage OR call a qualified repair person.

Dishwasher flooded


That happened to us and our plumber came. He said our pipe under the sink was bent up so the water wasn't draining properly. Also, check for clogs. Use Drano or a snake to get all the gunk out of the drain.

Water comes into dishwasher while not in use


Try checking the drain hose and make sure it is not backed up. When it is, all the water won't drain out. You may need to use Drano on your main pipe as well. Don't hesitate to ask me anything. I am here to help.

Leaks into sink when turned on


Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposal or sink drain. If you leave a lot of food on the dishes, it could cause a backup in either the drain or the garbage disposal, depending on your setup. Try running the garbage disposal or using a product like liquid plumber or drano to clear it.
